Sending content from any mobile device to your TV is possible with Chromecast or Roku. Another way is to use Firefox for Android to view content from your smartphone or tablet straight to your TV as long as they are supported.
Mozzila recently introduced this new feature that lets you send videos from Firefox for Android directly to the supported TV via streaming. Of course, this setup would still need your Chromecast or Roku to work.
Do you want to show others you recent videos saved on your Android phone or tablet? Send videos to your TV with a single click. Want to share a video from a website? Play the video and click on ‘send to device’ icon. The video will then automatically show on the supported TV.
When you hit ‘send to device’ icon found on the video playback controls and URL bar on the screen, a list of devices connected to Chromecast or Roku will be displayed. Only the devices connected to the same WiFi network you are in will show. Select the device you want to use to send your video to.
As long as devices are connected to the WiFi network, you can send any content to another device whether in your living room, kitchen, or just about anywhere within the range. You can play, pause, or close any videos showing from the Media Control Bar found in the Firefox for Android browser. You can still browse Firefox and use or change tabs while videos are streaming.
Make sure you have Firefox for Android first before you can use this feature. Download app from the Google Play Store.
